Depending on your driving style, I think it is normal for this car/engine. Mine needed 1 l. after only 3500 kms. and this despite first oil change around 1700 kms. (which I needed to do twice due to wrong oil from dealer).

If I would be using the car optimally (longer commutes rather than my daily short work-home routine) I guess could need less oil, I'll see how this will continue in the future when my routine changes. I followed everything I know about break-in procedures carefully and am pretty sure it is not the break-in.
